Open Letter To Bank Of America

Re: Just Right To Fail

Dear Bank Of America,

When you spent much of the past four years currying favor with the Obama Administration, and feeding the hand that fed you (not to mention buying up Countrywide, which was cozier with the left than most), I merely shook my head; it reinforced the “plutocrats are the biggest liberals” pattern.

But this?

Bank of America has reportedly frozen the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, according to its owner, Joe Sirochman.

In a Facebook post dated December 29, Sirochman wrote the following:

“My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms…our Web site orders have jumped 500 percent causing our Web site e-commerce processing larger deposits to Bank of America. So they decided to hold the deposits for further review.

“After countless hours on the phone with Bank of America, I finally got a manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for further review — her exact words were — ‘We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.’”(emphasis added)

According to Unlawful News, this isn’t the first time Bank of America has targeted a customer involved in the firearms industry.

McMillan Group International was reportedly told that its business was no longer welcome after the company started manufacturing firearms – even after 12 years of doing business with the bank.

I had no choice in becoming a customer; my mortgage got sold to you.

I spent years boycotting stores in Minnesota that posted that law-abiding carry-permittees weren’t welcome – and ten years later, the signs are mostly gone.

What do you think five million of us nationwide can do?

That is all.

  1. Nothing new. BoA has been anti-gun for years. McMillian Firearms just this year, for example. I dropped my Countrywide loan years ago after BoA bought them because of their policies on guns and customer service (oh, they “service” you all right, in the same way that cows get “serviced”).

  2. I don’t know why anyone that doesn’t live in a cornfield 50 miles from the nearest inhabited town isn’t already doing their banking through a credit union.

  3. I used to work for BofA during the mid 2000s at the loan center they had in Bloomington. It was a fun time to be in the business but BofA had a very strange corporate culture even then. When they shut things down in Bloomington and moved operations to Portland, I had a chance to go but didn’t do it. Good thing, too — just about everyone I knew who went west eventually lost their job out there.

    BofA started to lose its soul when it went after Countrywide, which was a disastrous decision because it got them hip deep in the toxic loan business. Up to that point, they weren’t in too deep. I was long gone by then, thank goodness — my old colleagues have some awful stories to tell about those days.

  4. The only good thing about Portland is that it’s located close to the ocean, which makes it convenient when it comes time to walk slowly into the surf to stop the blinding pain the moonbat insanity out there will eventually put into your head.

  5. walk slowly into the surf to stop the blinding pain the moonbat insanity out there

    No kidding — it’s a deeply strange place. There are roads out there in the suburbs (Hillsboro and Beaverton) where the houses are stacked up on 1/8 acre lots on one side of the highway and there’s a sod farm on the other side that extends for miles. Essentially if buy a new house, you get a $250,000 shotgun shack. That was one reason why we didn’t want to move out there; imagine being cooped up in such a small space in a place where it rains 200 days a year.

  6. Not to mention that OR, like its’ neighboring states CA and WA , is another liberal bastion of ignorance!

  7. Shocked? AIG is going to sue the US for bailing it out. When you lay down with dogs, you get fleas.
